New to me stuffs . . .

Went to a SU stamp/supplies sale with another card maker on Friday. I was lucky to find a punch I had been looking for but did not find at local sales. It is the SU Ornate Tag Topper punch. With another new-to-me SU punch from another sale I labeled the punches and now they are ready for storage with like items:

Labeled the front and the back of the punch using the label maker. Since this punch has a channel for your card stock I printed out " 2" " and cut that label to size. Put it in the channel of this punch. This way when I go to use this punch I will be reminded the width size of card stock I need to use the punch.

For my new-to-me Ticket Duo punch I just bought I also labeled that:

On the Ticket Duo punch you can see a number "6" is written on the punch in red Sharpie. (Sharpie comes off the punches using rubbing alcohol if later I would want to remove that). That red number reminds me that I have the SU Paper Piercing template that matches this punch shape if I should want to use the Paper Piercing tool on it. I have numbered all my Paper Piercing template sets on their label. That number is now on all my punches that can be used with the template set. This way I know by looking at my punches which punches can work with my templates.

Now that the new-to-me punches are labeled they will now go with the other punches. I always label my punches as soon as I get them. This way if anyone should ask me the name/title of a punch I used I have the exact name of the item. TFL and YOLO

You are SO organized, girl! Good for you at finding these at the sale. I've not seen the topper one, and don't own either. Heard you had a fun class this afternoon. So glad you were able to get there and do some of the cards. I saw the samples. Wished I could have been there to join in. Hope you'll share what you did. Enjoy the heat! It's 101 here this afternoon. TFS & Hugs
